This Slow Cooker Ham and Cheese Breakfast Casserole is the perfect way to use up leftover ham or to have a hot breakfast on the table when you wake up! This easy breakfast casserole recipe is perfect for brunch, too!
I know that everyone loves breakfast recipes, but, you know what I don’t love? Getting up early to make breakfast! I, admittedly, love to sleep in, so having a hot breakfast on the table before people get up is not something I excel at. I definitely prefer the make-ahead route, and if I can make it the night before and let it cook while I sleep, even better!

Breakfast Casserole with Biscuits
I love that you can see the big beautiful biscuits in this recipe. It is always best to use some type of bread in a breakfast casserole recipe as it soaks up the moisture and adds a delicious light and fluffy texture. Refrigerated biscuits work really well in this recipe because of the slow cook time.
